Pittsfield, MA -- Haddad Dealerships of the Berkshires is partnering with MountainOne Insurance Agency to offer onsite insurance sales, according to a joint announcement by Haddad Dealerships President George Had

dad and MountainOne Insurance President Jonathan Denmark.

Stated Haddad, “One of the key benefits of this partnership for our customers is the opportunity to obtain insurance during a vehicle purchase, working with a strong local agency that is as focused on personal service as we are. MountainOne Insurance offers a high level of expertise that will serve to strengthen our offerings here at Haddad.”

According to Denmark, “George and the staff at Haddad have a long history of successful sales to satisfied clients in the Berkshires and beyond. Teaming up with the dealership to provide onsite insurance products from our local agency will assure that auto buyers get onto the road in their new vehicles quickly, and with the peace of mind that comes from receiving personalized policy recommendations from our experienced professionals.”

The strategic partnership allows MountainOne agents to sell personal insurance products within Haddad Dealership locations. Vehicle buyers will be able to work directly with MountainOne’s licensed agents during a purchase in a seamless and integrated process. While obtaining vehicle insurance, buyers will also have the opportunity to review other policy needs with MountainOne’s representative, and take advantage of available multi-policy discounts. Clients will also be able to utilize the important in-house claims service at MountainOne Insurance, which provides personal assistance with the difficult and complex claims process, should the need arise.

Denmark states that he will launch the partnership program with several agents onsite at Haddad’s East Street location.
